YOU CAN STILL DONATE UNTIL JUNE 24! March 28 was our preliminary deadline because we needed to buy some big ticket items (namely: tickets). We have purchased our entry tickets and booked our hotel, but you can still help us out with some flight money and other things that come up. Want a specific prize, have requests? Please don't hesitate to ask!

As many of you know, Sally and Kristin are the co-hosts of the (in)famous YouTube web series, What Did You Look Up on Wikipedia? This summer, we'll be traveling to Anaheim, CA to attend Vidcon, an annual gathering of YouTube artists and fans. Since we make $0 from our YouTube videos (we get paid in laughs and groans), we're asking your help to make it possible.

WHY ARE WE GOING? We pour love and beer and sweat and tears into making these episodes, and we're hoping to connect with other people in the biz to help us improve the series and teach us how to promote our work in fun, authentic, and potentially monetizing ways. There's a lot of dreck on the internet, and a lot of brilliance. We want to learn how to, in the words of that great sage, Rihanna, shine bright like a diamond.

BREAKDOWN OF EXPENSES: Here's what your generous donations will be going toward:
2 Vidcon passes - $ 250-300
4 nights hotel (June 25-29) @ max. $200/night - $800
MSP-LAX round trip airfare: Approximately $600
Transportation to/from the airport: Approximately $30
GoFundMe fees & miscellaneous expenses: Approximately $270

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU? You're welcome to donate without any kind of reward, but if you like, we have some pretty sweet rewards for you to claim, depending on the level of your (Game of Thrones) themed donation. Reward levels come with all the things listed, plus the prizes for the ones that precede it (with the exception of some of the in-person prizes). Unless it says otherwise THERE IS NO LIMIT to the number of people who can receive a certain prize. You can also donate other amounts by clicking on the link that says "or, donate other amount" to the upper right of the prizes. Confusing? Contact us and we'll walk you through it!

Thanks to the rockstars we call our friends, family, former students, and just cool people who like our channel, we are headed to VidCon! THIS PAGE WILL REMAIN OPEN UNTIL JUNE 24 so if you didn't get to donate, you still can! Though we have purchased our entry tickets and hotel stay, we could still use some money to help with flights and and other expenses. VidCon and Anaheim are expensive, so anything helps. If you want a detailed list of things we have spent and plan to spend money on, we are happy to provide it.

Thank you for your continued support!

Kristin & Sally
We're going to VidCon!
